Y Heroes: Dion Merchant, Greenbrier North YMCA

5 April 2017

Jonathan Turner is a 10-year old student at our Crestwood Intermediate after-school location.  Last year he was having academic difficulties in a couple of subjects and was placed into our Academic Achievers program.  Along with his tutor and the dedication of his after-school counselors, Jonathan has made great strides in school and has even made the honor roll this year!

As a part of our 2017 Annual Giving Campaign, we are showcasing a different person (or family) at each of our family centers. We are calling this our Y Heroes project. This video platform is a way for us to highlight people and/or program areas that have been positively impacted by the dollars we raise as a non-profit organization and relate back to each community our Association serves.

When you give to the Y, you continue to strengthen our community and move us all forward. As the nation's leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y uses your gift to make a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood. Your gift ensures that the Y's programs and services will be open to all. Consider making a gift today. www.ymcashr.org/GIVE
